Con Always a potential for leaks
While this is a closed loop cooling system meant to be leak free, having something that pumps water inside of a very expensive electronic device can be a risk to be considered. While air cooling will never allow one to reach the low temps this water cooled system can, if it does leak there can be major damage.
